Deadlock in JIRA after Security Patch Feb 2014

After testing the security patch on our 5.2.11 test instance (Linux + SQL Server), we get deadlocks when starting. Is that a known issue? com.sysbliss.jira.plugins.workflow.manager.WorkflowLayoutManager seems to be the atlassian workflow designer.

Apart from these workflow manager deadlocks the log is clean, but Workflow Designer Plugin is automatically disabled (which is ok for now). Is it safe to continue?

Further testing revealed, that the workflow designer plugin is not dispensable. I'll file a support ticket.

Can you share the solution here as well?
